Vienna, Austria-- Oscar-winner Mira Sorvino says she could see giving up acting for her other passion -- human rights advocacy.

While saying she loves acting, she describes her efforts to stop human trafficking as "my calling."

That, she says, is so important that "in a decade or so, I wouldn't mind just switching to a career in humanitarian causes."

Sorvino spoke to The Associated Press on Friday after being extended as the U.N. Goodwill Ambassador to Combat Human Trafficking.

The 45-year-old won an Oscar as a prostitute with a golden heart in Woody Allen's "Mighty Aphrodite."  She's had meaningful roles in over 50 films and TV productions in a two-decade career, and holds a Golden Globe and a host of nominations reserved for the world's best actors and actresses.
